    Arrow Barrels improvements for sieges and crossbows

    Siege battle realy need some small improvement that would make some playthroughs much more viable: Arrow Barrels should also provides bolts and javelin/throwing axes (the last two could be discussed). I went for a crossbow playthrough, and their only advantages against bows is precision, while...
  7. In Progress An invisible wall on Veron castle

    Summary: While in a defense siege in Veron Castle I noticed my troops were getting stuck on the stairs to the right of the gatehouse. Walking there I found that I could stand on top of something invisible likely caused by the wall clipping through the ground where those stairs are. How to...
  8. Tweaking siege engines and settlement defences values

    Does anyone know where to tweak gate health, wall health, siege engine health, siege engine damage, etc in both the campaign map and siege battle scenarios? I could not find the xml file except for siegeengines.xml. The only tweak-able values there are the ones that affect only some aspects of...

  12. Indecisive AI armies

    I've been seeing some strange behaviour which must be linked to how the AI calculates their risk. Noticing this on version 1.6.4. Situation: Atrion castle is under attack. One AI army (1) is close to Rhesos castle and the other (2) near Saneopa. I'm on the Calradia expanded map so there is a...
  13. Siege retreat - dead realism

    Do you think it is normal for a player to retreat an infinite number of times while defending a castle? I simulated a situation where I with 100 archers pushed back 1.5k army, just shooting while they approached the walls, and then retreated and did it again and again until victory! From my...

    Destructible tower doors

    For new siege scenes I would like to suggest destructible doors from the walls to the inside of the towers. Combine this with acces to the walls restricted through staircases inside the towers. This will leave the attacking force vulnerable and exposed on top of the wall. See other...

    In Progress Siege AI Defender Ladder Issue

    Summary: In many of the sieges I have defended, the AI only protects one of the two ladders or not at all. This allows troops to flow into the castle and usually open the gates. In some sieges there is an excess of troops standing in front of the gate while hardly any are on the walls...
  16. Sieges - Commands, governors and other much needed features.

    After many hours of gameplay, I finally had the opportunity to defend my town...and it was glorious! The Aserai invaded with a force of 1600 soldiers vs my elite army of 500. Suffice to say, I annihilated them. All things considered, it was a pretty good experience from a hack and slash...

    fighting as your governor in a defensive siege

    If one of your clan's fiefs is under siege, and your character is not there, fight as your governor. This way you can participate in high stakes battles not initiated by the player. By keeping this system confined to governors it keeps the focus on the clan. I personally really like the body...

    Need More Info Game crashes while defending Varcheg, Siege AI still acting strange.

    It seems the game crashes about halfway through defending varcheg from a Battanian siege. It also seem like the AI had a hard time scaling siege towers and using ladders. They seem to just blob up and send one guy up the tower at a time. I had high graphics and 1000 enemies. Varcheg at a...

    Suggestion for a change to how ramming the main gate works

    I think in sieges it it would work a lot better if the defenders were not able to open the gate when it is currently being rammed by the battering ram. So they would actually have to sally out to handle the people manning it or attack them with ranged weapons. As it is currently the defenders...
